Out Of Sight
* What: Crime drama
* Who: George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, Albert Brooks
* Directed by: Steven Soderbergh
In a nutshell: George Clooney meets Jennifer Lopez. The ER megastar reputedly auditioned thousands of beauties, looking for that magic blend of charisma and chemistry. And then he went on to pick Jennifer. Hmm... Mind you, with her husband Puff Daddy monitoring proceedings closely, who wouldn't be careful about pairing off with the best looking Latino in the world?
The bigger picture: The novel is written by the supremely hip Elmore Leonard. The creative team are the guys behind Get Shorty. It's a marriage made in heaven.
Out Of Sight tells the story of suave bank robber Jack Foley (Clooney) and his burgeoning romance with Federal Marshal Karen Sisco (Jennifer Lopez).
Foley has committed more bank robberies than any other thief in the FBI's files and, perhaps surprisingly, has never used a weapon in the process. But he has never been lucky with getaway vehicles and has often been caught. Now facing 30 years back in the pen, Foley is determined to escape and pull off one last heist to set him up for retirement.
However, he hasn't counted on the determination of Sisco to see him behind bars. When Sisco finds herself hostage following Foley's escape, she quickly falls for his charms. Will her feelings for Foley overwhelm her professionalism? Or will Foley's desire to see Karen again increase the chances of recapture?
